Why Spend Money When You Can Get Stuff for FREE
Our economy is not out of the woods yet and people are still finding it hard to make ends meet, let alone save. So I wanted to tell you how to get some things for FREE.
1. Freecycle.org is a nonprofit made up of local groups. You join the one closest to you, and see everything they have listed at no cost! The group’s aim is to recycle as much merchandise as possible to help the environment and the community.It’s a great place to find building and landscaping materials and household items such as lamps, tables, chairs, and dishware.
2. Craigslist has a “For Sale” section with a tab for “Free Stuff”.
3. Freenology.com lists items like anti-virus software that are free after rebate and has links to other free stuff including coupons, contests and deals.
4. For the month of April you can get a will made up for free at RocketLawyer.com. (If you are married, have children or other dependents, you need to have a will!)
5. Deals are listed daily and frequently updated on TotallyFreeStuff.com.
6. The public library has a treasure trove of free offerings: books, educational material, magazines, movies, CD’s, free children’s events, language programs, workshops and cultural happenings.
7. Walmart.com has free sample programs on their “free sample” web page.
8. IHOP is allowing kids to eat for free every day in April.
9. Walletpop.com has a special section on freebies and there’s a Friday Freebies report every week.
10. Ben and Jerry’s is offering free ice cream on April 12th.
The FTC has recently ruled that companies issuing coupons with a stated value must honor that value with an equivalent cash offer. Which means if you collect coupons with a dollar value on them, you can send them in to the issuer and get cash back.
